5. Failed to perform as a unit
The young Indian players like Pant, Sheryas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw were leading the leading runs scorers for Delhi Daredevils in IPL 18, but as a unit, they never clicked either with the bat or with the ball.
Rishabh Pant is the leading runs scorer with 521 runs from 11 matches at an average of 52.10. He is only Indian batsman to score a century in the current season with the best score of 128* against Sunrisers Hyderabad on 10th May. He also scored 3 half centuries.
Sheryas Iyer also performed well scoring 354 runs from 11 matches. The Under 19 captain Shaw made his IPL debut and showed his class with the bat scoring 214 runs from 6 matches at an average of 35.66. His best score in the tournament has been 65.
The overseas players like Jason Roy, Collin Munro failed to perform according to their known potentials. Delhi Daredevils lacked a genuine all-rounder in the team. Vijay Shankar played 10 matches and scored 112 runs. His bowling performance was also poor taking 1 wicket from 10 matches with an economy of 12.83 runs per over.
